V-10 inspection car, basking in the late afternoon sun at Williams Lake. Not very often was this unique track unit out and about, let alone parked for a photo. Generally when not in use it was housed in a special built storage shed in Prince George yard.  It was used by management and supervisors for their system, on line inspection trips etc. I would not be surprised if it made the odd trip up the Takla subdivision for a fishing trip or two. Information is scant about this unit. I understand that it was built by D. Wickham Co, possibly in England although I have not been able to track down year built or any type of model remarks.

  1. Nice catch Doug. CN and CP used the same model 40 MK II Wickham Inspection Cars back in the day.
